An awesome rum – winner of a Platinum medal and ranked in First Place by the prestigious Beverage Testing Institute in Chicago, with a whopping 97 points. Interestingly, now that industry giants Diageo are distributing Zacapa, the '23 years old' age statement has suddenly been dropped and replaced with a somewhat more plausible claim – the rums used are aged between 6 and 23 years old and are blended together in a solera.Tasting Notes (2)

Judges' Comments from The International Cane Spirits Festival 2007
Nose full or apricots, citrus fruits, vanilla, cocoa and bourbon; rich and full-bodied with spicy chocolate flavors and a pleasing tannic bite; very long finish, clean and rich with a lovely liqueur-like density.
Gold Medal, Best In Category (Aged Rums 15+ Years Old).
Producer's Tasting Notes
Dense, with marvellous complexities of aroma and flavour; thick legs that fall slowly.
Great intensity, sweet with notes of wood. Sweet fruitiness, vanilla, almond, chocolate, toasted wood and delicate hints of spice.
Dense and exceptionally balanced, very long aftertaste.
Attractive and evocative. Elegant and noble.
More from Ron Zacapa
This one lacked the complexity I found in Doorly's 12. There's no acidity, but isn't as harsh as the XO. Smooth and like sipping salted caramel. Nothing else beats this for the sweetness, and I'd be sorely tempted to blend this with the doorly's 12!!!! Maybe not the full bottle
A seriously good sipping rum. Very smooth and not too sweet and sugary. One of the best hence all the 5 star reviews.
Hands down the best rum I've ever had. Makes one hell of a rum old fashioned as well.
vanilla, wood and spice await you , if you have to buy a rum , buy this one !, you will not be disappointed , it the bomb!!!
